August Favorites

Yes I am late to be posting my monthly faves. So sorry little bunnies!

Makeup

L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara

I got the one in the gold tube a couple months ago and for the last month it has been performing like a dream. A few pumps on the ol’ curler and one or two coats makes for gorgeous, fluttery, full lashes. I have to make sure to really start at the base and wiggle my way up with this formula, but it is worth every effort.

Elf Long Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow in Soiree

300

These $3 pots of wonder are a new discovery for me after watching Melissa on YouTube. The product is bouncy and kind of a dense gel consistency. I apply it with my ring finger and smudge it out with other colors using a tapered crease brush. I found that it did not crease on me or move at all. I have pretty normal eyelids if that helps (not overly oily).

NYX Butter Gloss in Éclair

300 (2)

I love ALL the NYX Butter Glosses and one of my faves has to be Éclair. It is a beautiful, pastel baby pink (signature color) and is perfect on it’s own or paired with a lipstick.

Hair

Oscar Blandi Dry Heat Protect Spray

I got the in my Summer 2014 Allure Beauty Box and was unsure of how I’d like it. Well, I am here to report that I love it. I really do. I don’t know about you, but one of my pet peeves is when I spray on a big juicy dose of heat protectant on my hair and then it’s just, wet. Then I feel pressured to wait for it to dry before I clamp 450 degrees of straight heat on to it. With this product, there is no pressure and ZERO waiting time, because it’s like, dry. It is sheer genius, I tell you.

My New Blow dryer! The Conair Inifinti Pro Blow Dryer

You guys. For seriously two years I was using THE WORLD’S MOST GHETTO blow dryer on the planet. I plucked it from the bottom clearance shelf at T.J Maxx and ended up paying the consequence until recently. I actually REGISTERED for this new Conair blow dryer at Target but alas, nobody chose this OR the lighted makeup mirror (SO rude). Since I purchased this over 3 weeks ago, my life is just, better. My hair dries faster and the color is beautiful. It is everything.

Alex and Ani Bracelets

I found these two at The Rack and happily forked over the $14.97 for each. Here we have one initial bangle in the letter “N” and one “Capricorn” bangle even though I don’t believe one iota of that horoscope stuff.

Minute Maid Drops

Drinking water has never been super easy for me. I don’t get the people who are all, “water is so good!” Like, no. It’s not. Diet Coke is good. A lemon drop is good. Thankfully all the juice brands have come out with “water enhancement” products which help us water-haters cope. The ones by Minute Maid are pretty delish!

 That’s all for now! Happy September!!
